The BCCI is reprimanded for hosting the T20 World Cup to be held in India in October-November. When the Cricket Board meets in the Special General Assembly (SGM) meeting convened on May 29, it will present the full plan. However, if the World Cup is moved, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), which is considered the safest host, will remain ‘Option B’. However, the BCCI has to decide on Kovid’s position in the country only after July.
BCCI sources say that India is the host venue for the World Cup right now. The board is looking at it like this. If things go bad again, the call will be made only after the month of June. And yes, UAE is the other option. SGM will also discuss the rescheduling of the remaining 31 matches of the Indian Premier League (IPL). United Kingdom, where the Indian team will play a Test series against England.
Hence possible IPL phase-2 in England
With the support of the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), English counties have agreed to host the IPL and it is understood that the broadcaster star is also in favor of it. The only problem may be with England. Board sources said the UK could prove to be a relatively expensive one. But on the other hand, the UK government is allowing crowds for sporting events. This means that franchisees can earn from gate money and this will provide a subsidy in costs. As of now, the BCCI is looking at it this way.
India-England series may change
A major reason is the UK being the top choice for the IPL. As experts say, ‘BCCI and ECB are discussing to change the five-Test series. If possible, the series may be shorter. However, it has not yet been made public. But the ECB is believed to have agreed to fold the Test series. They want the IPL in England, as the counties can earn from it. ‘
The county offered to host
It is worth mentioning that the counties of England, Middlesex, Surrey, Warwicksor and Lancasser had proposed to conduct the IPL. 29 matches of IPL have been played, while 31 matches are still remaining. Another reason why the county of England has to offer is huge revenue from the tournament in the form of revenue. The UAE made a big profit last season.
